In an attempt to update alumni directories, the TPS Foundation has hired Texas-based PCI to contact graduates from all Toledo Public Schools high schools except Scott, which completed such a directory just a few years ago.
The first step in this process is through mailings of several postcards, which are now landing in the mailboxes of TPS graduates. The postcards are signed by Dr. Romules Durant, CEO/superintendent of Toledo Public Schools. This project is legitimate and supported by the district and the Foundation as a way to find as many members of the TPS Proud Nation as possible.
If there are any questions, please contact the TPS Communications Office at 419-671-0440. Again, this project will cover the TPS comprehensive high schools - Bowsher, Rogers, Start, Waite and Woodward - as well as the closed schools of DeVilbiss, Libbey and Macomber.

Nearly 200 people came together at The Toledo Club on Thursday, April 27, to honor the best and brightest of Toledo Public Schools - the valedictorians, the salutatorians and 29 recipients of scholarships from the TPS Foundation. (A list of the scholarship winners can be found here: http://www.tps.org/tps-foundations/scholarships
The valedictorians and salutatorians of the Class of 2017 were asked to provide their top high school honors and top activities, as well as their most memorable community service project or involvement. And finally, they were asked about future plans. Get to know them a little better:
Two Raymer Elementary students recently performed an act so kind that Dr. Romules Durant, CEO/superintendent of Toledo Public Schools, wanted to make sure they knew he was TPS Proud of them.
Principal Barb Ferguson relates that a student was getting bullied in one of Raymer's 5th grade classrooms so two fellow students decided, with the help of their parents, to try and help their classmate.
Some Byrnedale Elementary third graders got a pleasant surprise when they arrived at their classroom on a recent Friday morning.
That's because teacher Pam Denner had turned her room into a reading oasis as part of her effort to help her students succeed on their upcoming Ohio Third Grade Reading Guarantee test.
Mrs. Denner says her goal was to redesign the classroom to be more student-friendly.
